is going to break it down for us. what do these plans do with all that money? >> first off, the $50 billion infrastructure program would rebuild or build 150,000 miles of road, 4000 miles of railroad track, 115 miles of airport runways. essentially, that would be paid for with taxes on the oil and gas industries. it's a six-year program, no new jobs created immediately, and much of the criticism is that it is essentially a payoff to the unions. there is a second plan to be unveiled tomorrow, the "wall street journal" saying that this is a $200 billion plan, $200 billion worth of tax breaks for businesses. it would speed up the writeoff, for example, bill, you spend $10,000 on a computer right now, and immediately, that $10,000 comes off your business income, taxable business income. overall, no new jobs created immediately, some say that this is the president scrambling because his polls on the economy are looking very, very bad, and both of those plans would require a vote in congress, which is not likely. bill: wow, so here we are, post labor day. i can't think of a bigger issue in the co
>> rose: welcome to our program. tonight, stephanie d'alessandro and john elderfield take us on a tour of a new matisse exhibit at the museum of modern art. >> it's a period when matisse really seemed to have very intently stopped the kind of work he was doing before and began searching for something and we can chart him through the evolution of "bathers by a river" in fact and then i think through "the exhibition" trying different modes of painting. bringing together different styles, avant-garde styles of the time, ways of making the surface of works very different and reworked. and we watch him not sure where he's going but excited about the possibility of a new kind of art for himself and we feel that for matisse that was a kind of radical invention. he said about "bathers by a river" and "moroccans" that they were two of the most pivotal works of his career. i think it's important he used the word "pivotal" and not "important." it suggests there was a change that those works brought about in his career and i think that's part of what that radical invention is about. >> i
